GAO provided information on its Energy and Science issue area plan for fiscal years 1995 through 1996.
GAO plans to: (1) examine the missions, organizational structure, and management practices of the Department of Energy (DOE) and related energy and science agencies; (2) determine whether the federal government is using the most cost-effective ways to deal with the safety, security, and environmental legacies of nuclear weapons; (3) ensure that DOE is effectively using competition to obtain the lowest prices in energy markets, while providing secure and environmentally sound sources of supply; and (4) examine the appropriateness and outcomes of the federal government's sizeable investment in science and technology programs.
